I didn't give this recipe 5 stars because I did make some changes. This recipe is very simple, and may be great as written, but I think it needs a bit more flavor.
I used cooked, dried black beans that I had soaked and cooked the previous day, and poured off some of the cooking liquid so that the beans were just covered. I don't rinse black beans that I cook because I feel that some of the nutrients of the beans are in the cooking liquid. Rinsing them after the soak eliminates the "gas" problem.
In addition to the onion and garlic, I added lemon juice, fresh ground cumin, black seed (because I didn't have enough ground cumin), and apple cider vinegar. I brought this to a boil, and then let it simmer on a medium-low heat for about 45 minutes so that all of the flavors would blend.
I made a large quantity, and will freeze it in portions for use as a side dish and to use in burritos and enchiladas. I think these beans would also be good if mashed and used to make re-fried black beans. The flavor is absolutely wonderful, and it's a great way to introduce nutritious beans into your diet.
